Krypton! With a C-R-I? Well, actually, it’s Krypton with a K-R-Y-P-T-O-N.

Krypton is real!  They’ve found it! Well, sort of.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium in New York City, was tasked by DC comics with finding an actual location that the planet Krypton could exist.  After some celestial searching, he found a planet orbiting  the red dwarf star LHS 2520, a cooler and smaller sun than ours.  As an added bonus, Tyson will appear in the next issue of Action Comics #14, titled “Star Light, Star Bright” which comes out Wednesday November 7th.

Up next hopefully we can find Themyscira, Atlantis, or the Bat Cave.

    Does LHS 2520 wear skinny jeans and listen to bands I’ve never heard of? Cooler, how?

      And He reads comics that haven’t even been written yet. Hell, the writer’s haven’t even been born.
